The Video

Hopkins opens up the video by saying:

"Hello everyone. Good morning. Well, new year is coming. It's been a tough year, full of grief and sadness for many, many, many people. But 45 years ago today, I had a wake-up call.I was headed for disaster, I was drinking myself to death. I'm not preachy, but I got a message."

As for what drove him to begin to be sober he said:

"A little thought that said, 'Do you want to live or die?' And I said, 'I want to live.' And suddenly the relief came and my life has been amazing."

Hopkins also mentions that not every day since has come easy to him and gives advice to those struggling. He shared:

"My life has been amazing, and I may have off days and little bits of doubt, and all that, but all in all, I say hang in there. Just keep in there, just keep fighting. Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid. That's sustained me through my life. And that's all I've got to say, and happy new year. This is going to be the best year. Thank you."
